Super bizarre news out of Cannes revealed that veteran producer Edward R. Pressman (The Crow, American Psycho) and filmmaker David Gordon Green would teaming to produce Adam Bhala Lough’s retro slasher film Splatter Sisters, with Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood attached to star. The pic will be a sexploitation-serial-killer-slasher-road-movie circa 1989. MTV, intrigued by the news, caught up with Pressman who revealed something I find pretty effin’ cool.
While Marilyn Manson is known to us as a “shock rocker”, his role in Splatter Sisters turns him to a new genre, with a new band!
“Marilyn is a death metal rocker, which is a different kind of music than he’s known for. He’s going to form a new band for the film… that would record or tour for this new entity,” Pressman told MTV.
Also intriguing is the idea of seeing Manson’s on-screen chemistry with Wood, to whom he is engaged.
“Evan is one of these two Splatter Sisters. They’re… totally alienated from their families, who are not good to them, and they take on a vagabond life. They’re on the road… to go to Hollywood. They’re fans of Marilyn’s band and become indoctrinated under his spell in the movie.”
Earlier reports had Lough stating that Splatter Sisters could create a subgenre, which he calls “Skinemax Cinema,” based on the direct-to-cable movies of his childhood.
